we have recently discovered on Fedora/s390x that webkitgtk3 produces a
very large static library (> 4GB) during build (some tests are linked
with it) and it fails later with "malformed archive" error . Nick
Clifton told me there is a 4GB limit for the size of the archive so
other large C++ projects and other arches can be also affected, so
beware. See bug 835957  for more details.
